HP StorageWorks 8Gb PCIe FC HBAs
Overview
Product Description
The introduction of the HP StorageWorks 8Gb PCIe Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters brings datacenter infrastructure components to
a higher level of performance and efficiency. The HP StorageWorks 8Gb PCIe FC Host Bus Adapters are priced only slightly higher
than equivalent 4 Gb HBAs, yet, they have the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance. In addition, an 8 Gb FC HBA purchased
today will protect your investment longer than if you were to purchase an equivalent 4 Gb HBA. If you are using storage intensive
applications, such as rich media, the increased performance of the 8 Gb infrastructure allows you to store and retrieve critical
information faster.
The virtualization of servers has become an important capability for most datacenters. The ability to improve overall server utilization,
resulting in significant cost savings, has made server virtualization a "must-have" for most enterprises. By having an HBA that supports
and maximizes your server virtualization efforts, you are protecting your significant investments in virtualization technology.
Since most of today's datacenters are required to be available 24 X 7, it is critical that infrastructure components have failover
capabilities. By installing redundant HBAs into your servers, you can feel confident that your servers will remain connected to
mission-critical stored data.
Finally, today's enterprises are becoming more and more sensitive to the power consumption within the datacenter. The 8 Gb PCIe
FC Host Bus Adapters provide a number of features that work together to reduce power consumption, thus delivering a "green"
benefit within the server.
